Perhaps Drug Rehab Slipped Her Mind?

An Australian member of parliament has called for the children of drug addicts to be permanently removed from their parents and offered for adoption. Liberal MP Bronwyn Bishop wants to see adoption, rather than fostering, used to separate children from parents who are battling addiction. Excuse me, but has the honorable member completely forgotten about successful drug rehab programs?

Ms. Bishop, who is currently chairing an Australian parliamentary inquiry into the impact of illicit drug use on families, told the Australian Broadcasting Company’s Four Corners program that the current system is skewed towards the interests of drug-using parents, and not their children. She said there are hundreds of parents who are desperate to adopt children and give them love and good homes, but “there is this ‘biology first’ principle.”

By ignoring that successful drug rehab can keep a family together, and tossing “this biology first principle” on the trash heap, Ms. Bishop nullifies both the proven breakthroughs in the science of drug rehab, as well as one of the most primal urges of human history and experience – the urge for one’s own biological parents, and children.

Ms. Bishop’s detractors have been quick to speak up. Brisbane Youth Service spokeswoman Amanda Davies said there is no evidence that all people that use drugs are unable to parent their children. And Queensland Council of Social Service president Karyn Walsh said there is strong evidence that forced removals cause children long-term harm. “You can’t just go removing children simply because their parents have a drug addiction,” she said. “Children need to know their parents, and not all parents who have a drug addiction are bad parents, or incapable of parenting.”

Victorian Child Safety Commissioner Bernie Geary put it best when he said, “There is nothing in my experience worse than a child who’s sentenced to be without their parents for the rest of their lives. Children are better off with families in the long run.”

And let’s not forget the ultimate solution: if the parents do a successful drug rehab program that gets down to the bottom of why they’re taking drugs and resolves those issues, they won’t be addicts.

Avoiding Male Organ Odor After Sensual Activity

Not surprisingly, men often take steps to eliminate or minimize unpleasant male organ odor before going on a date or into a situation in which sensual activity is a distinct possibility. After all, when unveiling his equipment, a man wants to be greeted with gasps of surprise and pleasure, rather than someone gasping for fresh air. Following good male organ health and hygiene guidelines helps control male organ odor before sensual activity, but men need to remember that they need to take steps afterward as well.
With that in mind, the following tips are recommended for avoiding rank male organ odor after sensual activity.

Wash up beforehand. In most cases, by the time a couple moves into the bedroom, several hours will have passed since the manhood was last washed and/or aired out. A guy knows that getting into sensual activity is going to increase the likelihood of male organ odor; after all, not only is there going to be a lot of sweating going on in the heat of the sensual moment, but the tightness of the female organ and the friction of the sensual activity is going to create more opportunity for sweat. And, while this may be a bit ungallant, the fact is that the female organ itself does not always carry an aroma of roses – and that odor is going to get transferred to the manhood.

So the name of the game is to go into the sensual activity with as little pre-existing male organ odor as possible. With that in mind, if possible, take a quick trip to the bathroom and give the member a final rinsing before commencing with the sensual activity.

Wear a latex organ covering. Clearly in any casual sensual activity engagement, a man needs to be wearing a latex organ covering for protection against disease and to reduce the risk of an unwanted pregnancy. But donning a latex organ covering also helps protect against male organ odor. It will not eliminate it entirely, but the latex organ covering will retain a great deal of the scents generated during sensual activity which otherwise would have lingered on the manhood skin.

Consider a trim. Although there is no scientific basis for this, anecdotal evidence suggests that a clean-shaven member and mid-section retains less odor than a hairy one. This is logical, as thick hair in the area catch and hold fluids which then dry and create an odor. When the area is clean-shaven, the fluids dry directly on the skin, making them easier to access and to wipe away. Speaking of which…

Clean up afterward. This is one of the most important things a man can do to help decrease post-sensual activity male organ odor. All too often, a man feels relaxed and satisfied after sensual activity, and before long that sense of contentment leads him to fall asleep. Even men who are instead invigorated by sensual activity often neglect a wash-up after sensual activity, and prefer to luxuriate in the experience. But guys do need to do a good cleaning; they don’t need to pop out of bed as soon as the deed is done, but within a reasonable amount of time, a little soap, water and drying is needed to keep things scent-free.

Use an appropriate creme. Men seeking to avoid male organ odor after sensual activity unfortunately often forget this crucial step: regularly using a superior male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). There are many cremes out there, but the one that is needed will list vitamin A among its ingredients. Also called retinol, vitamin A is valuable because it has anti-bacterial properties that can fight and destroy the bacteria which help bring about rank male organ odor. The best crème will also contain a powerful antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid. By battling excess free radicals, alpha lipoic acid helps strengthen delicate member skin, making it better able to withstand intense washing to fight odors.

How To Safely Dispose Of Rx Drugs

According to the White House Drug Policy Office, prescription drug abuse among 18 – to 25-year-olds rose 17 percent from 2002 to 2005. In 2004 and again in 2005, there were more new abusers of prescription drugs than new users of any illicit drug.

Young people mistakenly believe prescription drugs are safer than street drugs, doctors say. But accidental prescription drug deaths are rising and students who abuse pills are more likely to drive fast, binge-drink and engage in other dangerous behaviors. Parents should be alert to these signs and changes in behavior.

Al Gore III’s arrest may raise awareness among parents, said Dr. Donald Misch, director of health services at Northwestern University in Evanston. “This is an opportunity for people to understand this is happening in your household,” he said. “These are your kids. The drug dealers they’re going to are their doctors, their parents and their friends.”

Parents should clean out their medicine cabinets and lock up any prescription medications. This is more than likely customary in homes with toddlers but is advisable no matter the age of the child, just to be safe. This would also prohibit giving them to friends if your child isn’t a user.

Deputy drug czar, Scott Burns stated: “We found in focus groups of young people across the country that in large measure they’re getting the drugs from their own medicine cabinets and the Internet. Some Web pharmacies deliver ordered drugs without legitimate prescriptions, but other sites steal credit card information and never fill orders, Burns said.

With the rise in prescription drug abuse, three federal agencies issued guidelines earlier this year for disposing of medications without harming the environment.

1. Remove unused, unneeded or expired prescription drugs from their original containers.

2. Mix prescription drugs with an undesirable substance, like used coffee grounds or cat litter, and put them in impermeable, nondescript containers, such as empty cans or sealable bags.

3. Throw containers in the trash.

4. Don’t flush prescription drugs down the toilet unless the accompanying patient information says specifically it is safe to do so.

5. Return drugs to pharmaceutical take-back sites that allow consumers to return unused drugs for safe disposal.

Author’s Note: A pharmaceutical sales representative can increase sales by volunteering to return expired or outdated medications for the wholesalers in their territory. This can be a daunting task for their employees. Offering customer service at this level is rare and not expected. This also gives the drug rep an idea of the inventory on hand and an opportunity to help sell their medications. The wholesaler can offer specials to the retail drug stores on your proprietary pharmaceuticals.
